The Story of My Life... and Hello, May!

So I've decided... that in loo of me not blogging much lately... I would challenge myself with joining Jenni - along with lots of other bloggers and do this...



And, HELLO BIRTHDAY MONTH!

I'LL BE 30 IN 19 DAYS!

HOLY CRAP!

Okay, I'm finished now. 

Onto the topic of the day...

The story of my life {shortened. By a lot.}



I was born during this wonderful month - almost 30 years ago. I was supposed to be born in April, but thought I'd stay an extra month in the womb. Hey, why not?! I grew up in small town USA. We didn't have a stop light, a gas station, we went to the same school from K-12. And I graduated with about 52 people. Everyone knew everyone. And sometimes that's a blessing... sometimes that's a curse. I have a younger brother, who's become one of my best friends in the world. And we were raised by two of the most amazing parents. After high school I went onto to Bowling Green State University and studied Apparel Merchandising and Product Development. I absolutely loved my college days. And there are days that I miss them. I went on to work for Abercrombie & Fitch for 3 years and when enough was finally enough {it takes a special  soul to work there} I began working for an amazing, local photographer. I started as a nanny for her two boys {in which I learned more than I ever thought possible} and am now her assistant in her Short North studio. I have loved learning about photography and am so happy that I'm still embracing my creativity every single day. And just recently I have opened up my own little online boutique, Nora & Jac

I wish I had a fabulous love life to write about - but I don't. I've had some amazing loves. Some heartbreaking ones. And some damn good times... but right now - my life, my friends, my family, my adorable niece, and my cat are the loves of my life. And I suppose that isn't such a bad thing. ;)

Was that 250 words? 

I'm excited to get back to blogging again, I tend to take these little breaks. Eh, life happens, right?!

P.s. There are some exciting things happening for Nora & Jac soon. Make sure you "like" my facebook page to stay up to date!
